Cops buy plots to prevent Josh Powell from being buried next to sons he killed

F**kin' stupidity. And the media seems to often leave out or minimize that he killed his sons and himself which is a different dynamic to someone who kills their sons and strives to keep themselves alive.

Good move by those officers.

Something about this strikes me as wrong, the dad was mentally ill, he wasn't Charles Manson.

I think the same to be fair.

I mean he may be their father but would you really want to be buried next to the man who killed you regardless of who he is?

Are you KIDDING ME? How is it ANY BETTER? He still KILLED his CHILDREN. There is no way he should be buried anywhere near them - how disrespectful is that to the people who want to pay tribute/respects to the INNOCENT victims? I don't get your "logic".

To me its less about what the dead victims think (although thats important), and more about the living family wanting to visit those victims without being slapped in the face by seeing the tombstone of their MURDERER right next to them.

It's a strange situation, I think it should be the family's call, not the police's. The police didn't even know this family.

I agree with Helen. This is the family's call, not the police. However I would think the family would want what the police did, but who knows.

It WAS the family's wishes that shitbag not be near them, the mother's parents. Since she most likely got killed by her husband as well and her body has never been found, they should at least be able to have a mourning spot for their grandchildren.

Then the family should have done it, don't you think? The whole thing is weird.

THIS. Did anyone else actually read the article? The police did it out of their own pockets mostly - so it was a personal decision as citizens, and cops who worked on the case. And the mother's family is all supportive of the choice.

Read below. I don't really think it's that weird at all. I think it's really nice the mother's parents have the support of the police officers who are going out of their way to make sure they won't be put through anymore misery. There are some police officers who show a deep compassion for people who have gone through terrible tragedies.

The cops did this as citizens not on behalf of the police dept. The family is still mourning but they did say that they would move the children's body if he was buried there. What else would you suggest that they do? What's unbelievable to me is that the father's family thought it was ok to bury the murderer next to the children that he killed. How insensitive not only to their grandchildren but their daughter-in law and her parents. Looks like he learned his selfishness from them.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.
